• No meme. This post is just a
recognition of Grant Imahara for his
work on Star Wars, especially as
operator of R2 in the prequels. He
passed away late July 13th.
Thank you for everything, Grant.

    • It may seem silly, but I am legitimately upset by the death of Grant Imahara. He and many others inspired me to tinker with engineering and electronics.

    • I can't believe it even now. When I heard the news I was in such shock I forgot how to breathe for a minute. He was my inspiration to become an engineer. Every school project I would do or every time I tinkered, I always did a bit of a sly laugh as I thought about how much the Mythbusters enjoyed...
